Jeremiah 46:20-22 Common English Bible (CEB)

20 Egypt is a beautiful, yes, beautiful heifer,
    but a horsefly from the north
        is coming to bite her.[a]
21 Even her mercenaries
    are like well-fed calves;
        they too will retreat and run for cover;
        they won’t survive.
The day of disaster has come to haunt them,
    the time of their punishment.
22 Like the sound of a snake hissing
    as it slithers away
        is Egypt[b] as armies approach in force;
        they come against her with axes,
            like woodcutters.


  1. Jeremiah 46:20 Heb uncertain
